South Carolina Firm Upholds Founding Philosophy
Established in 1984, Lewis Babcock is a litigation law firm with a statewide practice and a national reputation. Led by founding partner Keith Babcock, our attorneys know their way around the court room. Our attorneys have significant experience representing plaintiff and defense clients all across South Carolina. The firm is often called upon to serve as local counsel in large complex national or multi-jurisdictional cases. We are fearless in our dedication to serving our clients.
Respected for Knowledge, Skill, and Experience
Lewis Babcock was one of the first firms in the region to pursue legal malpractice cases and is still a leader in this complicated area of law. Our attorneys have served as advisors to various courts for more than 20 years. Cam Lewis (1941-2017) served as chairman of the Advisory Committee on Standards of Judicial Conduct and argued three cases before the United States Supreme Court. Keith Babcock served as a bar examiner for six years and has been the only lawyer serving on the state’s panel of judicial ethics. Keith has also earned an outstanding reputation for representing real property owners in condemnation and other disputes and is the only South Carolina lawyer who sits on the Owners’ Counsel of America.
Our firm is honored to be AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, the highest rating available for legal ability and adherence to ethical standards. Lawyers from our firm have also been named Super Lawyers and recognized among the Best Lawyers in South Carolina.
Special Systems for Handling Cases with Voluminous Documents
Our experience litigating large complex cases has provided great insight into the importance and care of document management throughout the life of a case. At Lewis Babcock we recognize the importance of developing systems that can handle huge volumes of documents. In particular, class actions—for example, those involving charges against state retirement funds, hospitals or car dealerships—may have hundreds of thousands of supporting documents. Our litigation experience and ability to effectively and efficiently manage document productions in complex cases and even multi-jurisdictional cases is why we are often associated as local counsel in such matters.
